As the world becomes smaller, locations conform to what all starts looking like an American mall. Few places still exist where when upon arriving you know and feel that, finally this place is different. Probably the largest Souk in the world. Populated by the best market negotiators in the world. Get lost you say? Yes, very easy to get very lost here. It is safe but may feel intimidating. Not recommended after dark and I believe that the shops close at sunset. Go for the experience. If you are at all intimidated hire a professional guide. Don't miss the tanneries, clay workshop or artisan areas. Beware - regardless of how proud a deal you got on that leather item or ceramic, know that it is always cheaper somewhere else. Buyers remorse is guaranteed. So get over it before you arrive. When staying over - get the full experience and stay at a nearby Riad. Oh...don't be afraid of the Camel heads that you may see hanging.
It sure has, this is the place to get your Moroccan slippers, be sure to bargain hard and do not be afraid to walk away if the owner laughs at your price offered. Nine times out of ten they will come after you. Great to see all the handmade items and most interesting. The Souk is just such a confusion of passage I hope you come across it.
Fes is famous for its slippers all over Morocco so what better place to shop for them than the souk specializing in hand made leather babouches. Every shopkeeper selects his own products from the representatives who arrive with towers of babouches shuttling in a frenzy through the market offering their merchandise. The small shop cubicles are stocked to the ceiling with different models, sizes and colours The merchants are not pushy here so I ended up buying two pairs of blue slippers in beautyfull printed shades for 200 dirhams.
This is basically a local market. Nothing special.You can give it a miss unless you want to buy something but have bargain have a local guide with you.
